that possibly dzhokhar tsarnaev is coming back to consciousness and able to communicate with investigators. it all goes back to "usa today" report citing anonymous law enforcement source but if the information hashings out it is certainly significant, the fact he is able to communicate with investigators by writing. he can't speak because as you mentioned there is a gunshot wound either to the neck or jaw or both but he is able to write according to this report and the answers providing to questions are described as substantive. what know from the information the answers he is providing indicates there is not a larger network. there is not a second wave planned or a wave people should be fearful of connected to him. again the information, the sourcing on the information just doesn't give me a whole lot of confidence, jenna. jenna: we'll take that interest consideration, mike as you've been on the ground there for the past several days. we see the flowers behind you and tell us where you are and when will the area around the blast site be reopened to the public? >> reporter: this is copley

judge. he read dzhokhar tsarnaev his rights, informed him he's being charged with using a weapon of mass destruction resulting in death and she told him he could face death if convicted. according to a transcript of the proceedings, the judge concluded by saying: tsarnaev was represented in his hospital room by three public defenders. prosecutors today also revealed new details about the bombing and our bob orr is in washington to fill us in. bob? >> reporter: scott, law enforcement tells us that dzhokhar tsarnaev has indicate he and his brother acted alone use he attack. because he was shot in the neck, the interrogation has been challenging but our sources say he has been cooperating with written answers. today prosecutors needed to hargince a magistrate there was though evidence to charge tsarnaev so they filed a sworn affidavit revealing new details. 2:38 lastdaafrnoon, 11 minutes before t first kiplosion, the tsarnaev brothers were spotted walking each with a heapsack. as they turn tonight boylston street where the marathon was being held. three minutes later they stopped and stood

see dzhokhar tsarnaev just after the murder of an m.i.t. police officer. >> first the headline from the suspect dzhokhar tsarnaev, we acted alone. a u.s. government source quotes the surviving suspect saying the older brother was the master mind and they had no international ties to terror groups. he also says the men were motivated by radical islam and the jihadist goal of waging a holy war. they learned to make their bombs from readily available instructions on the internet. deborah has the latest from new york. >> wolf, we can tell you investigators are painting a much fuller picture of the parents and the life this tamerlan tsarnaev was living. his pull here in the united states and his life over in the russian caucasus. what we can tell you this morning is that the m.i.t. officer that was shot to death did not radio into dispatch to request a description of the suspect and he did not alert dispatch he was responding to the two men who apparently came up to him totally unaware. he was shot four to five times according to a source. it took at least nearly 13 minutes to actually f
afford an attorney, he replied no. among the charges, 19-year-old suspect, dzhokhar tsarnaev faces one count of using a weapon of mass destruction. which carries a potential maximum sentence of death. we've learned despite the injury to his neck, he is cooperating with investigators, writing his answers to at least some of their questions. sources tell abc news, among the details he has provided is that he and his brother learned how to make bombs from the internet. >> it was his brother, the primary motivating force for him to become radicalized. why did they end up doing what they did on that day? >> reporter: much of the investigation is still focused on his deceased 26-year-old brother tamerlan. examining his life, his recent trip back to russia, as some question if the fbi did enough to monitor him after they questioned him two years ago. >> they investigated it thoroughly and did not find terrorist activity domestic or foreign. >> reporter: the street where two bombs killed three people and injured more than 200 others is handed over from the fbi to the city of boston for the ong

as many questions as answers. the man to answer most of them, suspect dzhokhar tsarnaev, remains in a hospital bed. sources tell cnn he is communicating with investigators, but would not elaborate. the sources say investigators want to know if the public is safe, if there are other bombs and who, if anyone, might have put the tsarnaev brothers up to this. tsarnaev was formally charged today with using a weapon of mass destruction against persons and property. then, late this afternoon, the "new york times" published a transcript of the legal proceedings, during which the defendant could only nod in agreement when asked if he would answer some questions. a judge in his hospital room told him if i ask you any questions here in this hearing which you think might incriminate you, you have the right not to answer. again, a nod he understood. he also asked if he could afford a lawyer. the defendant mumbled no. according to the fbi affidavit, also released today, new details about the crime itself and the manhunt that followed. turns out just 11 minutes before the bombs went off, the su

interview more about tamerlan and dzhokhar tsarnaev. shannon is driving us from washington. what did the uncle have to say today? >> wolf, his name is ruslan tsarni. today the uncle is speaking a different tune. i started the interview asking what's your reaction to the capture of your younger nephew. take a listen. >> i'm relieved. i'm relieved that he's alive and now there's a chance to find out who was behind it. who is the mentor and how possibly he could get involved and do this harm to innocent people. second of all, i stress that there's a chance for dzhokhar to speak forgiveness. >> when the older brother was a young child, the uncle actually had him in his care for a while and i asked the uncle about how he interacted and kept up with the older son for over the years. the uncle said in 2009 he had a conversation with the older brother, the older boy, and that he noticed a change in his voice where he was becoming more extreme in terms of his religious views. i asked him what he attributed that to. take a listen at how he described that. >> i called one of the gentleman livin
hospital bed with conspireing to use weapons of mass destruction. 19-year-old dzhokhar zorn yef s tsarnaev is charged with malicious destruction of property resulting in death. the charges could carry the death penalty. after much speculation, the white house explained today why tsarnaev will not be prosecuted as an enemy combatant. >> he will not be treated as an enemy combatant. we will prosecute this terrorist through our civilian system of justice. under u.s. law the united states citizens can not be tried in military commissions. and it is important to remember that since 9/11, we have used the federal court system to convict and incarcerate hundreds of terrorists. >> tsarnaev now lies under armed guard unable to speak due to what may be a self-inflicted gunshot wound in his neck. authorities continue to question him, relying on written answers at this point. but his answers may be somewhat less important in his prosecution given the volume of evidence in the federal complaint, including description of video after the first explosion. "bomber two virtually alone among the individuals
of massachusetts at dartmouth where the younger tsarnaev was enrolled told nbc's jeff rossen that dzhokhar actually discussed the bombings at the gym the day after they took place. >> i talked to him about normal things going on in the day. i talked to him about how it was crazy we had a bombing in boston. >> you said that to him, talked about the bombing? >> yeah. he said it's really sad it's happening, it's a sad thing. it happens around the world, people here aren't used to it. >> reporter: he said it's sad? >> he said it's sad. looked me straight in the eye and said that. >> officials tell nbc federal charges will include a description of a still unreleased fbi video of the suspect putting his back pac down at the site of the second bombing and then acting very differently from those around him when the first bomb went off. >> this suspect took the backpack off, put it down. did not react when the first explosion went off. and then moved away from the backpack in time for the second explosion. >> now, bringing charges in federal court would end the contentious debate that's played out over the
government official and this is a preliminary investigation but dzhokhar tsarnaev is saying the following to investigators. first of all, there were no foreign terrorist groups involved. that this was two brothers acting on their own. dzhokhar, not surprisingly is saying he was following his older brother tamerlan and tamerlan was the one who was the driving force behind this. in addition, there's an indication from the interviews that the brothers were self radicalized on-line. they were getting information from videos on-line, you tube videos on-line but not from communication or e-mail the way the ft. hood shooter was but they were very much self starters, self radicalized. the older brother, it seems from preliminary investigation, to have been motivated by jihad, traditional jihad motivation and political implications that they are under attack and jihad dis need to fight back. this is from preliminary interviews with this individual, with dzhokhar tsarnaev. >> the interviews have been limited. >> very limited. everything needs to be checked out. the investigators will follow up. the
terrorism charges against 19-year-old dzhokhar tsarnaev will be filed today. lawmakers are already debating whether he should be read his miranda rights. >> you're giving them the option, as to whether or not they want to cooperate and i don't believe they should have that option. this is sole will i for the purpose of interrogation to find intelligence to get the intelligence that i believe we need. >> questions remain -- did the brothers have help in carrying out their attacks? >> we're satisfied that the two actors here, the two people that were committing the damage have either been arrested or killed. and the people of the city of boston can rest comfortably at this point in time. >>> but did the fbi miss warning signs after interviewing 26-year-old tamerlan tsarnaev in 2011? where did the brothers get their guns? their training? and their inspiration? >>> in washington, the boston terror attack could become an excuse to slow down immigration reform. >> if ways to improve the bill offered amendment when we start mark-up in may and let's vote on it. i say that particularly those pointin
, dzhokhar tsarnaev. a naturalized u.s. citizen, 19 years old, considered extremely dangerous. the hunt is focused, but not confined to a series of communities west of boston proper, including cambridge and watertown. 21 hours since the photo was first released, dzhokhar named on the loose. his older brother, his alleged co-conspirator in the bombing at the marathon died early this morning in a clash with police from which the younger brother escaped. according to one law enforcement source, actually driving over his brother's body. here is the brother's uncle in an emotional plea delivered late this morning. >> i say dzhokhar, if you're alive, turn yourself in and ask for forgiveness. and the victims, from the injured and from those who left, ask for forgiveness from these people. >> we already obviously are learning a lot about these two suspects. we know that dzhokhar who is 19 years old, first came to the united states in 2002, he was 8 years old. his family, he came here on a tourist visa. we know with his mother and his -- at least with his mother. let's go back to the aunt now sp
that dzhokhar tsarnaev, the one everybody is looking for, might be just a few blocks down here at an office complex. a security sensor had been -- had tipped off that there was, authorities, there was some intrusion that led everybody to think he was there. cars were zooming down here with screaming lights, and that turned out to be a wash. so i think that's just another reminder of how cautious we have to be until we know for sure where things stand. what we do know is he's on the loose. we do know -- we don't know -- there's no confidence that they know where he is and whether or not he has any accomplices. that may be an open question at this point. and probably the biggest open question of all is whether there are any more explosive devices, any ieds out there that he's left to maim and kill people that they don't know about. one was found in boston earlier today, and that may be the scariest singleknow, though, th police have been going door-to-door in this area all day. how far along do you think they are in securing the area? because as i understand it, at 12:30 when governor deval p
the street. what they say they can see on the camera is the person identified as dzhokhar tsarnaev come into the view with his backpack on. he work his way into the crowd. he is talking on a cell phone. he appears to take the backpack off. then they say you can see the backpack at his feet in still photographs. then according to this video which the fbi has not released. this is merely a narrative description of it. the first bomb goes off. you can see everyone in the crowd that says except him. virtually everyone in the crowd look toward the first scene of the bombing. and he does not. he calmly waits, glances down eventually and then walks away about 10 to 13 seconds before the second bomb goes off which the fbi says he has just left on the ground. that's the first point. we learnt in the criminal complain, the most detailed description yet for the fbi. the key piece of video and photographs from all that material that they collected. the second point. they say both bombs in the marathon bombing were made from pressure cooker using a similar formula of low power explosive, bbs with ad
details today about the suspects in the boston marathon bombing. ja h dzhokhar tsarnaev is listed in serious condition after he was taken into custody. the 19-year-old was found hiding in a boat parked outside a watertown home and there are new suspicions his older brother, who died in the shootout with police early friday morning, could have received terrorist training or support abroad. an official familiar with the matter tells nbc news that a foreign government has expressed concern back in 2011 that tamerlan tsarnaev could have ties to terrorism. the official says the fbi investigated but found no such links and reported the findings back to that foreign government. let's bring in msnbc analyst and former hostage negotiator james cavanagh. james, thanks for joining me again and great work yesterday through all of the mayhem, but i'm curious about the frequency with which we get a warning from a foreign government about someone who is here in our country that potentially has ties to terrorism. >> you know, that stuff does come in to federal agencies all the time really, alex.
who has been all over this story. j dzhokhar tsarnaev will be charged in a civilian court given the debate we have been talking about this this morning. that will be happening to him? >> no question. a policy decision the obama administration has made. he was a american citizen and naturalized last september and now a federal law, the national defense authorization act of 2012 that says american citizens cannot be tried in military commission. so it's not -- this debate is not a question about where he should be tried. the republicans who say he should be treated differently, their claim is that while they understand the civilian trial will go forward, they think he should be treated for now as an enemy combatant and questioned without any question about his rights, without any issue about whether information he gives would be used in his trial, and then turn back over to civilian authorities. but, clearly, the justice department will have none of that. that's not how it's going to go. >> he's in a boston hospital under heavy guard and serious condition including a gunshot wound
, there will be a moment of silence in boston and church bells will toll throughout the city. dzhokhar tsarnaev, the 19-year-old bombing suspect remains in serious condition where he is recovering from his wound, but apparently he is alert enough to begin responding to some of the investigators' questions. many of those responses in writing because he has gunshot wound possibly, self-inflicted to the throat, but amazingly, he and his brother for some three days managed to hide in plain sight. dzhokhar at umass dartmouth where he was a student, he worked out in the gym, even talked to friends about the bombing. imagine how chilling that was for his classmates. >> i'm in diss belief, like, i can't believe that's him. >> i don't want to believe it. >> i really don't. >> we saw his image and we don't want to believe it was him. >> it totally looked like him. we thought it was a mistake or, like, a joke or something. >> reporter: well, all of it changed, of course, on thursday, late afternoon when authorities released the pictures of the two brothers and a grisly manhunt began that resulted in the deaths of
abc's senior correspondent pierre thomas in washington. pierre, dzhokhar tsarnaev is in serious condition, and in no shape to be questioned. >> my sources are telling me that the suspect has a wound to the throat and neck area, that's made it very difficult to speak. he apparently knows police killed his brother, but that special interrogation team is standing by, ready to go. >> and they'll ask him questions at first without reading him his miranda rights. when do you expect charges to be filed? >> charges could come as early today. terror charges that could bring the death penalty. he won't be read his miranda rights. they're going to use the public safety can exception. they're taking this extraordinary step because there could be an imminent threat still out there. i just got off the phone, george, with a senior law enforcement, of deep concern of ammunition, guns and working bombs these men had. they were so disciplined. >> any indication of another sleeper cell? >> right now, no evidence of a broader plot involving more people here, but law enforcement officials say they c

"the culprits" by david remnick and the street scene by seth manukin. welcome. >> thank you. >> rose: here's what you say. "the sense of bland unknowingness, he seemed so nice began to evaporate the closer we got to the tsarnaev brothers." >> always in these tragedies, murder stories, terrorist stories, you have the initial quotes from -- "he seemed so quiet, he seemed so nice, i just saw him the other day." >>. >> rose: with his dog. >> and all that kind of stuff. but because of social media that evaporated quickly and you immediately started to get youtube pages for the older brother. you got a twit
